OneDrive allows you to keep around 50,000 music files which you can use it to as a roaming music profile or use apps to stream to any of the device that supports it. In Windows 10, we have this re-branded music player, Groove, which has native support for streaming music from OneDrive to any of the Windows 10 devices i.e. Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 Desktop, Laptops and Tablets.
This works seamlessly when you have the same Microsoft account configured on all of them. However, Microsoft has configured this in rather unexplained way that you will need to change your existing region to US or any of the countries which supports Groove Music Subscription.
You should know that you don’t have to buy MUSIC Subscription to use this feature, but SIGN-IN is only supported when your region is set to US. Also, this will need bandwidth as you will be streaming music most of the time.
- On any of the device, the option is available under Time and Language.
- Set region to US. This should work, but if it doesn’t, change your date and time to US setting as well.
